Now that the nights have grown longer and the days a little crisper, a cosy cottage is naturally the ideal escape. But what if your idea of a break from home requires something a little more interesting? Something with a little more moody glamour and romance? Then you are in luck today, because Little Inka is a hidden cottage escape on the edge of Bodmin Moor where lovers can entangle within one another, far from the rush of everyday life.
Take a Look
In fact it is a holiday home of two halves. The inky walls of the original stone cottage are bejewelled with tender ferns and contrasting nature prints, while chestnut leather sofas shine like a beacon of comfort in front of the roaring woodburner.
While through the light-filled en suite (where trailing succulents, oxidised copper and natural textures abound) the bedroom is housed in a converted shepherd’s hut. And here, a deep, forest green coats the walls, copper cladding arcs the ceiling and a sumptuous bed invites early nights and drawn-out breakfasts under the patchwork blanket.
Giving soul to Cornwall’s founding elements of granite, slate and copper, this unique luxury wilderness cottage encompasses the very essence of the UK’s first and final county. Atmospheric and cosy within, mimicking the deep, plunging darkness of the moor’s night sky. While in the adjoining cabin, a window carved out of the ceiling over the king-size bed ensures an unrivalled view of the elements throughout the seasons.
Outside, a sunken courtyard with a fire pit and a hot tub encourages guests to live a life outside, keeping eyes turned upwards and trained on the glittering Milky Way; a sparkling, untouchable road making its way across the cosmos.
“The cottage incorporates some of our favourite things; the shepherd’s hut, copper bath, sliding steel door and plenty of one of a kind, functional pieces handmade here on the farm. Outside, the three parts of the cottage showcase the elements of earth, fire, metal, wood and water, ensuring nature is at the core of your stay.” Wendy and Tom (the owners).
Little Inka is available to rent via Unique Home Stays
